    I had a strange thing for the Baja's father, the Subaru Brat. My father talked me out of that one...
    Living near Cincinnati, we called it the "braht", not the brat... You know, like the sausage!

    When they get home from work they park the respective vehicles over the shop lights and apparently that keeps the critters from making their home in the cars overnight.


    If you remember the kangaroo rats thread, I still haven't taken pics of neighborhood cars with the hoods up, but I did get this snap of the neighbor using the shop light method:


    Geez, Steve.. that seems just like paradise.. Rats and flood lights.. :)

    Those who live in colder climates, what is the deal with people leaving their windshield wipers propped straight up in the winter? Seems like everyone on my street does it. Only one on the GLI will go up like that due to the hood positioning.

    I understand it is so the wipers don't get frozen to the windshield, but if there's ice on the windshield, I'm going to be warming up the car before I go anywhere, unfreezing the wipers in the process. If the wipers can't handle that, they are due to be replaced anyway!

    It tears up the wiper blades when they freeze to the windshield.. You can't scrape the windshield, unless you peel the wipers off first... Move a little farther North, and we'll show you how it's done... ;)
